Over the last two years my Mr Cholet and I have become woeful at keeping our garden tidy, partlydue to throwing a small child into the mix, but mainly because we are probably just too pooped to fit in a good days gardening at the weekend. In the last few weeks because of the rain our yard become a jungle – no good for said small child to romp in.
Mr Cholet finally pulled out the mower on Saturday, only to get halfway through and have it die on us. So now we have half a jungle.
Does anyone know of a good gardener or gardening service on the southside of town that does regular maintenance? We need someone to keep the lawns down and generally keep things tidy around the borders including pulling out weeds where they may be proliferating as I don’t believe that spraying should be the first option. And maybe even some recommendations as to what plants would thrive where would be good too.
I have been stung once before by someone I found in the local rag purporting to offer all types of gardening services. $350 later, he had barely done what we discussed. I have a guy from Jims Mowing coming to give a quote, although on questioning about their “general maintenance service” he seemed to baulk at throwing weeding into the bargain.
